Blind since childhood, Sierra is satisfied with her success as a relationship therapist. Contacting 1Night Stand is an outlet for her physical needs, or so she tells herself. When she meets Daniel, the chemistry is definitely there, but a single parent with a child has the terrifying potential to disrupt her orderly life.
After losing his wife in a fire three years before that left him terribly scarred, Daniel has focused on raising his young daughter and little else. Meeting Sierra through 1Night Stand is a way to step back into the world. And he definitely can’t deny the instant attraction.
Madame Evangeline has a sweet surprise for them as they discover one another…
After Sierra Applegate’s fiance called off their wedding a week before the date, she needed years to be ready to take baby steps into the world of men again. And now she has a date through 1Night Stand with Daniel T. McIntyre.
Daniel lost his wife in a fire some years ago and has taken care of his daughter, Alisha to the exclusion of all else; but now he has decided to start dating again
However, something is afoot, these two are not the strangers to each other they think they are. Maybe Madame Evangeline really has super powers ... this is the man who long ago was the boy who gave Sierra her first kiss.
It is a sweet and enjoyable short story. Ms Olivia Starke has created some wonderful characters who give richness to this sweet story. I liked that although Sierra remembers colors just in dreams, she still is an optimistic woman.
Sierra is blind, you see, and she sees colors only in her dreams. She remembers blue, though. Blue is the sky and the color eyes of the first boy who kissed her so many years ago. Daniel.Though darkness greeted her, brilliant color filled her, a sweet memory to carry through the day.
I also enjoyed the relation between Daniel and his daughter:
The only thing I could offer by way of complaint is that it a bit too short. 4.5 stars“What’s for breakfast, pumpkin?”She tapped her chin, her slim eyebrows drawn together. “How about chocolate ice cream?”He feigned a stern look and played along. “Now, who eats chocolate ice cream for breakfast?”He burst out laughing. Each morning, Alisha created something more imaginative to go with chocolate ice cream. Love and pride swelled in his heart, and he stroked her dark brown hair, the same color as his in his younger years.“Fairies and gnomes eat chocolate ice cream for breakfast. And french fries covered with fire ants.”
